View this post on Instagram

Hello everyone!!! I hope that you all are well. Yesterday, the song that I worked on with Brandon Woods and Eugene Blackmon called “Another Day” was released!!! I am so happy and proud of how this song turned out. I was able to express many emotions that I usually hide from everyone. Hopefully this song will educate people on what black people feel like on a daily basis. I really hope that you will give it a listen!! You can watch the short film on the @goldenprideproductions website!!! ALSO, BLACK LIVES STILL MATTER!!! Call this number 502-735-1784 to demand justice for BREONNA TAYLOR!! We all need to come together to not only help our own communities but communities that aren’t so close, like the children in Yemen!! The world is not okay and needs our help. Please donate to UNICEF, they are trying to keep Yemen’s children healthy and are helping them learn so that they don’t fall too far behind!! Click the link in my bio so that you can become an ally and fight against a small portion of the many injustices that are going on in the world! Remember, silence is violence. Thank you!!!💗
